WOW! Today, I am promoting IMU and an Open Educational Resources (OER) workshop that I will be conducting on 22-23 November, 2012 (Insya-Allah). Should you go? If you are clueless of what OER, OCW, CC and MOOCs are, then you are lost in the (e-learning) past, and you are strongly recommend to attend this workshop. Besides this, we will have a lot of fun, and we will even gamify the learning experience discovering and creating OERs. WOW!
This 2 day hands-on workshop will equip participants with the necessary skills to find, reuse, remix and create Open Educational Resources (OER) for their courses. During the first day, we will explore and discuss together the concept of OER, Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), Creative Commons (CC), business models, and variety of OpenCourseWare (OCW) case studies and content development tools. During the 2nd day, participants will be required to work in groups (hands-on) to create a course topic/module (of choice) by reusing and remixing OER from a variety of resources. In the final session, we will discuss how to move forward with OER at our institutions.
LEARNING OUTCOMESAfter completing this workshop, you will be able to:
- Discuss the benefits and challenges of OER.
- Explore Creative Commons as an alternative to Copyright.
- Find OER and OCW using a variety of search tools.
- Identify a variety of web 2.0 and Social Media tools to develop OER.
